What are your thoughts? Thanks, Jennifer

Greetings! I do believe the 3rd pic is called California Sunset. If it smells like peaches, that's def what you've got.

Each plant looks a tiny bit different, and once they bloom more, their color will change a bit & get bleached by the sun.

They are very beautiful. :)

Here is a link that might be useful:

Angel, thanks for the possible i.d.

I will look it uo on the web. The flower has a very strong plumeria scent, but peaches does not come to mind in identifying the scent. I will have to ask my hubby to smell it for his opinion. It is a very strong scent though, almost perfume -y. It doesn't smell like Singapore White, which is what I consider "plumeria" scent.

I kind of wondered about Cooktown Sunset, which I wonder if that is the same as California Sunset? Jennifer

I'm so not the expert on this, but this is what my California Sunset looks like right now:

Maybe it's a lot pinker when it first blooms, though?

Take care,

Jennifer, I'm pretty sure Cooktown Sunset is a tall-growing Aussie variety and California Sunset is a JJ seedling of Penang Peach.

Whatever that last one is, the colors are fabulous.
